No, I was spending the evening
with a close personal friend in
a Chinese refrigerator.
Cash only and
I still want to see your ID.
I, too, have a dream.
I'm naked on the ferris wheel
at the Pullayup County fair.
Love your neighbors yourself,
that's what I say.
Keep your hiener
in the recliner, America.
It's a little like being drowned in
fabric softener.
